FIPDes is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programme in Food Innovation and Product Design scheduled over two academic years. The overall objective of FIPDes is to provide top-level and up-to-date education that qualifies the graduates to cope with the huge challenges in the sector of food innovation along with product design and packaging. It is a joint programme coordinated by a consortium of four universities:
